Obtain the minimum requirements in the Leaving Cert. You must also have a clean criminal record. If you are successful in joining, you have to be willing to listen and learn from your instructors who have years of experience.

Being a Garda is a serious job; one where you are tasked every day with the preservation of life and property. This can be dangerous at times, and it is never as glamorous as the television shows where there is always a satisfactory outcome. Sometimes Gardaí get hurt.

Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
